World AIDS Day

Matthew 10:8
Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously.

In a world where tachnology
and in particular
medical technology
has come so far
but where love 
and hope
and humanity
are often withheld from the vulnerable
We pray this day:
For the misused
the stigmatised
the marginalised
the bereaved
the unrecognised
the rejected
the frightened
the lonely 
For those cast aside
left out
ignored
excluded
misunderstood
silenced
For those denied hope
whose voices are not heard
whose pleas are played down
whose needs go unmet in a world of plenty
Lord, forgive us
for we know just what we do.
Forgive us
and break our hearts
for those for whom your heart is breaking.
